Schedule A Consultation
The consultation appointment is the essential first step when considering plastic surgery. Call Arkansas Plastic Surgery at 501-219-8388 or complete the “Contact Us” form on our website to schedule an appointment to discuss your desired procedure. We will send you an email with new patient forms that we request you complete and return to us prior to your appointment so we can create your new patient account. On the day of your appointment, please bring one form of identification, such as a driver’s license, and your insurance cards if you are considering a procedure which might covered by insurance.
We require a $50 payment in advance to schedule a consultation for every procedure that is self-pay, non-insurance. You may pay by credit card over the phone at the time the appointment is booked. Following your consultation, the $50 is fully refundable or can be applied to a surgery deposit. The $50 is nonrefundable for patients who do not show up for their schedule consultation.
When you arrive at Arkansas Plastic Surgery for a consultation, you will meet with one of our board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Gary E. Talbert or Dr. David H. Bauer, and our staff to discuss the procedure you are interested in. Your surgeon will answer any questions you might have about the process and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Please be prepared to discuss your medical history, previous surgeries and treatments, family medical history, any medications you are currently taking, and tobacco use as part of your consult. Your overall health status and physical exam will be determining factors in your surgeon’s professional opinion about the procedure you wish to have done and its potential success based on his findings.
Once you have completed your consultation, you will meet with our Patient Care Coordinator to discuss procedures costs and other things you need to know before your procedure is scheduled. As always, if you have questions after your consultation, please contact us!
